1020. Implicitly-defined copy constructors and explicit base class constructors

Section:  [class.copy.ctor]     Status: C++11     Submitter: Niels Dekker     Date: 2010-01-12

N3092 comment FI 19

It is not clear whether the current specification allows a defaulted copy constructor to call an explicit constructor to copy a base or member subobject, and if so, whether that is desirable or not. See also issues 535 and 1118.

Proposed resolution (August, 2010):

This issue is resolved by the resolution of issue 1051.
